Returnal Dev Housemarque Says They Can Always ‘Do More’ For Accessibility

Housemarque, the studio behind Returnal, has said on the latest PS I Love You XOXO podcast that the studio can always do more in regard to accessibility in games.

Quizzed by Greg Miller on the topic of difficulty in Returnal and its effects on accessibility, the game’s director, Harry Krueger, commented:

That’s definitely always going to be an interesting challenge to find that sweet spot. I think we can always do more and could always add more support for different ways to play the game and different control methods. I think when it comes to the difficulty I think it is a question of what kind of experience you are having with Returnal.

I think in many ways the story and the gameplay are very inseparable in Returnal. [For example], the character, Celine, she is talking about dying over and over and how these are insurmountable odds, and she can’t keep going on, and there’s this descent into madness that is happening purely because of the challenges she’s facing, and her challenges are the player’s challenges as well in many ways.
